Musee Fabre, Montpellier Reviews - Write a Review

  • Went in to see the current special exhibition - Francis Bacon/Bruce Nauman. Face to face.. Brilliant but finishes on 5th November 2017. If either of these artists interest you it is a must.

  • We've been to the permanent collection and it was ok. Paintings and sculptures from the 16th century to our days, mainly Dutch and French. However, nothing really mind-blowing. There is also a section on contemporary art.

  • Big collection of art and beautiful paintings, saw some masterpieces worth seeing. I hated the contemporary art exhibitions, but well I love only REAL art.

  • A good art gallery. Not huge but good to while away a couple of hours in.

  • Great museum with a great art work collection.
